TVS Launches ‘Zeppelin R’ To Take On Harley-Davidson 

A ‘Block Your Date’ invite has been sent to us by TVS for July 6, 2022.

we have reason to believe that it could be the much anticipated small-capacity cruiser, the TVS Zeppelin R.

The concept showcased in 2018 was said to be powered by a 220cc, single-cylinder engine producing 20PS and 18.5Nm.

However, a TVS Apache RTR 200 4V-derived engine could make it to the production model, albeit in a 220cc guise.

What's more interesting is that the concept model also featured a mild-hybrid assist for a bit more oomph

a belt-drive system, both of which TVS is likely to skip to keep the production model’s cost in check.

Underpinnings of the concept motorcycle include a 41mm USD fork up front and a monoshock at the rear, with petal discs for braking power at both ends.

This hardware is likely to make it to the production model as well.
